To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, whether her Department is taking steps to (a) re-open the British Embassy in Warsaw to tackle the needs of people connected with the war in Ukraine and (b) ensure a full and active consular service for British citizens seeking support in the region surrounding Ukraine.
7 March 2022
The British Embassy Warsaw continues to offer a full range of consular services. We have also established a temporary consular presence in Przemyśl, which can provide initial consular assistance for those arriving in Southern Poland from Ukraine. British nationals requiring consular assistance in Poland should call +48 22 311 0000. Phones are answered 24/7.
FCDO Rapid Deployment Teams have also been deployed to neighbouring countries of Ukraine to support British nationals in need of consular assistance. A range of assistance is available in these countries and we have specially trained consular staff at the borders to help British nationals.
